Terrible Service - High Interest Rates
by February 5, 2016

I tried to find out what "great" rates I would get if I took a loan through this company. The interest rates were almost 2 times what I'm already paying. So why do I want to consolidate and pay a higher rate?? I have unsubscribed from this service

I have been investing with Lending Club for about 18 months and am very satisfied with how things are going. The high return I am receiving is great.

I am happy with my experience at Lending Club. I found their website easy to use and got my loan processed quickly at a good interest rate.

Good experience

I like the convenience of the whole Lending Club process being online. My loan fully funded at what I consider a resonable rate.
